Sure, you would need correspondingly larger inner parts and data processing. I cannot imagine those things are hugely more expensive than the smaller DX parts though.

The most important thing is: the market for them is smaller so the price has to be higher. Most of the R&D goes into those bodies too.

The FX sensor costs substantially more to make than the smaller DX chip.

It should be noted that the D6x0 pricing suggests that the price of the FX sensors has come down relative to DX.
